The high-born daughter of an English duke, Gwen boasts beauty, blue blood...and an all-consuming desire for her bodyguard, enigmatic Neil MacBain. She came to America to run her sister-in-law's matchmaking firm. But who's to say she can't dream of her own perfect match?
Retired marine Neil thought he'd buried the ghosts of his past long ago. But when they return to threaten his new life, Neil's gorgeous client Gwen is caught in the crossfire. Now, keeping her safe means keeping her close: in his arms - and in his bed. For as the danger ignites, so does their passion....

Obsessive reader of at least 5 kindle books a week. Only use audiobooks to survive my daily 90 minute walk to work.
I have listened to most of the books in this series and liked them all. Unfortunately this one just did not match up. The romance was unconvincing with no real reason why they could not hook up but some misguided nonsense by the H that he was in some way damaged (ex-Military/survivors guilt). The h was English, titled, privileged and much is made of the fact that she manages to pick up spiders and dead birds, and go camping etc. without freaking out. It was all a bit cliché. There was a really silly scene where she had to dress up like a cheap hooker, just so they could check into a cheap motel without her being identified. Couldn’t she just wear a hat and stay in the car?
The whole plot line was unconvincing. Since when does disappearing for 3 days and putting friends and family into a panic achieve anything? Apart from allowing the couple to have lots of steamy sex of course. It all got just a little bit boring and the story dragged in the middle.
There were silly plot holes: Illegal squatters decide to install in a hot tub; H was in hiding but h’s brother somehow knew that he had brought a diamond ring; security experts fail to find any listening bugs but then later on go back and suddenly do find them. The whole carefully contrived plot to make the H look paranoid is derailed by the baddie typing H's name in a secure computer database (why not just use "John Smith"!). The ending was completely unreal. Would the H really walk away from his seriously injured "brother"? The h threatens military officials with a press conference to expose US military secrets if she does not get what she wants. Seriously? And she wasn’t immediately arrested??!
I will continue to be a fan of Ms Bybee, as I do usually enjoy her books. This one may not have kept my interest, but it was, as usual, well edited and the narration was perfect.
"Best of Three"
I just loved this book have read the other two and enjoyed them very much however the narrater was just so good in this book it was my favourite.
Her english accent for Gwen was brilliant as were her voices for the men. One of the best narraters of many books I have purchased.
I love the way Catherine had enough of the characters in each book to feel you knew them it worked just so perfectly.
The storyline was a bit deeper than usual chick lit I had trouble putting it down
just an interesting Weekday Brides set.
I have never read Catherine Bybee prior to reading these three books but will be looking out for any more of her books. She writes a very good light book do hope there are more to come.
"Awesome author and narrator.."
Wonderful book! Loved Neil and Gwen, and Rick was great too. Loved seeing Samantha, Jessi, Karen, Blake and Carter again. Loved the relationship between Karen and Michael. And I couldn't have asked for a better narrator.
WOW WOW WOW !!! Absolutely positively fabulous. Couldn't put it down until the very last page.
"two thumbs up!😁"
loved it! love it! love the characters. can't for the next book of the series.
"Too much language"
The story was awesome! Loved it! I absolutely hated the language in the book. A few times here and there, okay, I get that but my goodness, enough is enough.
"Loved this entire series!"
Loved this series! Have listened to the series quicker than I have any other series! I've had fun imagining and immersing myself into the stories!
"Another great addition!"
I thoroughly enjoyed this awesome story! The characters are fantastic and loved the plot. Tanya Eby's narration is such an enjoyable listening experience!
"Third Book In A Great Series!!"
This is a Delightful book!
The characters are Wonderful and the action is very well done! I am excitedly heading for book number four in the series. Reading them in order , to me, is best, because the characters are interconnected and I have gotten so attached to them that I don't feel the loss that always comes with the end of a book and saying goodbye to the people I've grown to care about.
love it excellent story from being to end love the way it ended also cannot way for number 4
"gwens voice is wrong"
gwens voice is wrong.I heard that voice for other books but it doesn't FIT this character
